Course Catalog

Get Out of the Slush Pile

An eye-opening how-to lecture on getting your writing out of the slushpile. Author and editor Hannah Tinti provides practical tips and step-by-step instructions on the ins and outs of submitting work to magazines, literary agents, and publishing houses. She’ll share her own cover letters and rejection slips, and give invaluable advice to help writers navigate the literary world and take their first steps toward publication.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
